Gizzi’s Healthy Appetitie by Gizzi Erskine

Competition published on July 31, 2015.

Every week, when I open up a newspaper or women’s magazine there’s a new bit of health information that puts a spanner in the works of what I had previously thought was the right way to be healthy. So here is my ethos.

  • I believe that having a better understanding of nutrition is not just about making your body healthier, it can also make you a better cook.
  • I want this book to teach you that it’s good to love food in all its guises and that sometimes your body needs to be fed what it’s craving.
  • I want people who are reading this book to try new things and push themselves into new areas of food, be it going to your local Asian supermarket or having a go at cooking with a new ingredient or gadget.
  • I want to start a new food revolution; one where people have a better understanding of nutrition but don’t forget that eating should be enjoyable!’

Gizzi Erskine (c) The GaztronomeSo writes latest celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine and it’s the kind of straight-talking that has won her legions of followers for her TV shows, online presence and quirky food events. It will certainly make foodies want to read her new book Gizzi’s Healthy Appetite, a collection of over 100 of her favourite recipes, all with a Gizzi twist.

Gizzi is not your average TV chef it should be said, because Gizzi Erskine was a professional body piercer in Camden before realising her life-long dream of working in the food industry. She’s also big into music even doing a spot of DJing at her legendary food events which feature live music and DJs, burlesque and Go Go dancers, including Gizzi. She is big on the music festival circuit, too, having curated, cooked and ran kitchens at Lattitude, Bestival, Wilderness, and Feastival.

Meet Gizzi up close and personal at the inaugural Cookbook Confidential Food & Drink Festival and get your copy of Gizzi’s Healthy Appetite signed. You might even get a piercing appointment as an added bonus.
